I'm not listening to any of these so called "insiders" either. I'm only interested in seeing "proper" testing from trusted sites. Everyone else can go fish with their conjecture.
After looking at/reading/comparing every possible review site in regards of any piece of software/hardware, the real conclussion is... the only review that's worth the time, the effort and the value... is yours, rest can go down the drain...
Because, in the end, the hardware you're going to run those future/present games is yours :P
